Google Maps has made drivers accustomed to frequent updates – all to provide users with new features and fixes as quickly as possible. However, the rapid pace of modernization has been abandoned and we wonder if this is the beginning of the end of popular navigation?
Google Maps – What ?!
The Google Maps iOS release hasn’t received a single update in … 91 days! That’s right – the latest fixes for iPhone users appeared on December 1, 2020.
Given that today is March 2, many people wonder what exactly is going on with the app. Has Google stopped developing it? US Giant Abandoning Google Maps for iPhone and Apple Car Play? Should we start looking for alternatives?
The app is still alive and constantly being updated, but only on Android. The lack of new iOS patches is likely related to the change Apple has made to its app store.
what is going on? Apple is asking developers to provide new privacy stickers in the app store. All of this is to inform users exactly how their data is being used. However, it’s still surprising how much time Google Maps takes to adapt to the new rules.
The reason is strange
Even worse, the giant was keen on everything related to updating iOS for navigation. This means that no one can say exactly when a new version will be released. At the moment, however, we don’t expect that to happen anytime soon.
Another thing is that Google Maps isn’t the only Google app that hasn’t received any new iOS update – perhaps for the same reason. Given that the giant is slowly starting to introduce new versions of other iPhone apps, maybe it will finally take over the navigation for the drivers the whole world uses?
